Highly trained doctors use breakthrough technology to provide a safe solution to irregular heartbeats.
Although your heart beats for a lifetime, it's a surprisingly delicate muscle. When your heart no longer beats as it should, the experienced arrhythmia specialists at Mills Peninsula Health Service (MPHS) use the latest technologies to treat this sensitive and complicated organ with the utmost precision and safety.
What is Arrhythmia?
The steady beating of the heart results from the regular transmission of electrical impulses through the heart. When these electrical impulses are mistimed or uncoordinated, the heart fails to beat properly. This irregular heartbeat, otherwise known as arrhythmia (ah-RITH-me-ah), can result in complications that can range from fatigue to stroke or death. Learn more about arrhythmia
Stereotaxis robotic navigation technology virtually eliminates the risk of the most serious ablation procedure complication. An electrophysiologist can remove heart tissue causing an irregular heartbeat with a catheter that is as soft and flexible as a wet noodle. Instead of pushing the catheter toward the heart, magnets gently pull it to the heart through an incision no bigger than a pin hole.
